“Great Unknown Songs #12 – AC/DC “Heatseeker”

AC/DC is like the Beatles of Hard Rock, you hardly gonna find bad songs on their discography and among so many hits, many great songs remain less remembered these days.


One of them is “Heatseeker”, that appeared on their 1988 album Blow Up Your Video as the first track. The track was also released as a single in various formats, with “Go Zone” as the main B-side.

On reaching No.12 in the UK singles chart in 1988, it became their biggest UK chart hit and remained so for 25 years until Highway to Hell reached No.4 in December 2013.

Simon Wright was the drummer of the band in this album. Just a month shy of turning twenty years old, joined AC/DC after their drummer, Phil Rudd, left in May 1983.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
